Today, progress reports are going home, which need to be signed/returned by Monday.  Please note that these are NOT report cards, meaning these are not the final grade for the term.  However, please use these progress reports as a tool to discuss with your child what’s going well and what can be improved by the end of the term (at the end of October).  Additionally, please note that I give full points back for redone math quizzes and other assignments!  I can also give 1/2 points back for tests.  Please let me know if you have any questions, and  have a wonderful weekend!

1) Math: Please redo low-scoring quizzes and the Unit 2 test (if you didn’t already)!  Finally, after sharing it with your parents (and redoing it if needed), please bring back your Unit 2 tests so we can put them in your portfolios!
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!! 

Items of Business:
*Hoppy Taws: one of our PE teachers sells Hoppy Taws for $1.50 in the morning before school!  (exact change only!)
*Lunch Money: If you bring lunch money and put it in the box at the office, make sure it is labeled with your name, teacher, and grade in an envelope/bag!!
